Beach isn't veryone clean but you can enjoy the nice sea breeze sitting on the platforms or the rocks provided. It's a nice place to visit in the evening for a walk.I had taken my 14mo daughter and she enjoyed running around on the footpath.

Rock beack is one of the best places in Pondy. Enjoy the cool waters and cool breeze of Bay of Bengal while having fun during your trip.

Well-maintained beach in Pondicherry. While parts of it are rock, some parts are sandy, and one can go up to the water. There is also a lovely promenade alongside the beach to walk/run in. No traffic allowed here, so only pedestrians. However, the crowds are substantial.

A few small joints offer snacks and drinks. There are also some monuments to look at.

Definitely worth a visit. Go in the morning to see the sunrise. The crowds are less and it is beautiful.

All beaches in Pondicherry are clean. There are benches to sit and enjoy the views. Can visit once during the stay.

The larger beach near the promenade which got its name from all the rocks across the beach. It is peaceful to just watch the sea however going near the sea is quite a task due to lack of any proper passage to go near it. The place comes alive in the evening.

The most unique beach with most of it having black rocks and small portions of sand. A very quite and serene walking path and with no vehicular movement makes it really quite and safe.

The beach is very lovely and very well accessible. Can visit this for morning bliss/strolls or just sit across it in th evenings for cooling breeze. I visited this beach multiple times during my stay at Pondicherry and totally enjoyed every time.

It has a nice view, but I was a bit disturbed when I saw a pipe dumping very dirty looking water where families play on the beach. I would say enjoy the view but stay out of the water.
